depends on how much you want to spend...

Look at Meindl rock books over neoprene waders as an option. Not designed for wading but excellent boots. Make sure to get the longer ankle supporting version with the boot tongue

With actual wading boots like Rapala's new design, you can insert metal studs in the boots yourself if you want additional grip. I've seen this done and it looks very effective.

Time spent fishing is never time wasted...

cheers keiran, was thinking about some of the boot-foot options, the
only boot i have come across designed for the job, was the mustad
sea-farer boot ,without studs complete waste of money, all the best
